COURSE OBJECTIVE
The main objective of this course is to present IT governance which has task to disseminate authority to the various layers in the organizational structures within specific business, while ensuring appropriate and prudent use of that authority. This doesn\\'t refer simply to hierarchical structures; experience has taught us that network structures allow for specialization, teaming, and building infrastructure to support those teams. Specialization allows the sum of the parts of the organization to be greater than the whole. Governance in any form is about leadership. And IT governance is about the way in which leadership accomplishes the delivery of mission-critical business capability using Information Technology strategy, goals, and objectives. IT governance is concerned with the strategic alignment between the goals and objectives of the business and the utilization of its IT resources to effectively achieve the desired results.
